Between the sixteenth and eleventh centuries b.C., the Greek mainland was ruled by the mycenaean culture and kept certain homogeneity in the political and cultural field. Many disasters affected the Mycenaean world of the thirteenth century b.C., caused a gradual decline of the social, political and cultural system. If in one hand the phenomenon damage the structures of the ancient tradition, on the other hand serves as the vanguard for the emergence of culture from the Iron Age. It is at the heart of this bilateral process that this project is focused, because it is through attic pottery, produced between the eighth and twelfth centuries b.C., that this project look for outline the ways of this process. Within the concept of cultural change, it is believed that there is the maintenance, to a greater or lesser extent, of certain socio-cultural patterns, as the opposite: modifications and innovations. The pottery takes place at this juncture due to its characteristics to retain a portion of aesthetic and cultural impressions of the society that produced it. This proposal is limited to a comparative analysis of pottery produced in Attica during the late Mycenaean (Submycenaean), Protogeometric and Geometric period in order to highlight the pathway of tradition between the ceramic styles of the respective periods and also identify where are the innovations.
